How to Make the Most of Your Bridal Photo Op…How to Look Amazing in Your Wedding Photos

When the last handful of confetti has been thrown (and the last of the champagne polished off!), your wedding day may be drawing to a close, but you’ve still got the photos to look forward to.

The wedding photos are essential for capturing those little moments you might miss, the funny dance your uncle did, and, most importantly, it’s your chance to be photographed professionally, looking and feeling your best.

Anticipating the wedding photos more can be almost as nerve-racking as the wedding itself, so we’ve put together our top tips for how to ensure you look amazing in your wedding photos.

Watch Those Pre-Shoot Drinks – everyone deserves a glass (or ten) of bubbly on the wedding day, but don’t overdo it before the photoshoot or you may regret the slightly bleary-eyed look in your pics

Smile – nothing is more beautiful than looking happy, smile with your eyes

Embrace Your Natural Self – don’t panic pose or do what you think you should – allow the photographer to capture your personality

Relax & Have Fun – weddings should be fun, if you’re enjoying yourself it will show in the photos
